Campers will start their business by choosing the product or service to produce. As a business team we will all learn about different options, discuss them, and vote together on what we will do. We'll work through math as we develop our pricing structure. When we focus on marketing we will look at ads in magazines and on TV and talk about the ones that we like and don't like and why. We will then have fun using our art skills as we create a print ad and film a video ad for our product. Children will get to distribute these ads to friends and family and show their video ad to family via Facebook. At the end of the week we will have the excitement of the actual sale of our product.
